Located on one of Cornwall’s most sought-after strips of coastline and just moments from the bay’s clear calm waters, The Liner in Falmouth is an exclusive development of luxury apartments overlooking the stunning Gyllyngvase Beach. Architecturally striking and beautifully designed, the building with its ocean liner-inspired curves and glass frontage has become something of a landmark on Falmouth’s seafront…but it has a lot more going for it than mere good looks.
Settling in the heart of the town’s up-and-coming food and drink scene and a stone’s throw from the fabulous St Michaels Spa means guests get the very best of what the town has to offer right on their doorstep. Of course, being just 20 metres from the award-winning Gylly Beach also means you can be out of bed and in the water within minutes – or you can pop back to your apartment for a bite to eat or a nap in the middle of those long beachy bucket-and-spade days.

There’s plenty to see and do in the area too, and all within just a short walk from the front door. Meander into Falmouth town and soak up its unique atmosphere where old-world seafaring meets modern culture. Peruse independent shops, pop into artisan eateries or simply soak up the vibe under colourful flags with a freshly brewed coffee. The South West Coast Path allows you to enjoy uninterrupted views up the coastline towards the picturesque Pendennis point and its hilltop castle, while a ferry will hop you over to the charming village of St Mawes where more outdoor adventure awaits on the Roseland Peninsula.
Right in the heart of Falmouth, Gylly beach is one of Cornwall’s best and is known for its golden sandy crescent, clear calm water and safe swimming. The beach has a real buzz about it during the holiday months with activities taking place throughout the school holidays. Perfect for families with children of all ages, if you’re in search of a beach-infused holiday then this is the spot.
The sheltered bay proves to be ideal for paddle boarding and kayaking– especially for beginners. Beach-based Blu Paddle Co. offers SUP lessons for visitors of all abilities and ages, and Gylly Adventures hires out paddle boards and kayaks as well as offers guided tours of the coastline, allowing you to take in hidden coves, sea caves and wonderful scenery.
For younger members of the family the gentle waves are perfect for paddling in the shallows, while a series of fabulous rock pools means young explorers can get up close with nature and its marine mini beasts, sea plants and rock dwellers.
